Though exiled from Russia during the Revolution of 1917, nostalgia for his homeland shines through Rachmaninoff’s music, particularly in the many works he wrote for his own instrument, the piano. Pianist Lucy Parham and renowned actor Henry Goodman bring the story of this longing to life with words taken directly from Rachmaninoff’s letters and diaries, and many of his best-loved works for solo piano, alongside music by Tchaikovsky and Scriabin.

Supported by The Alan Cadbury Charitable Trust

Lucy Parham’s trailblazing concerts in which she fuses music and words with the help of some of our most distinguished thespians, have become one of the must-see events on the musical calendar
